Gather Round Kids it Fact Check Time: 1. Actually, a majority of the American people do not believe you should shutdown the government to pay for the wall! There is not support “greater than anyone would know” THAT IS A LIE!
Even the Mayor of the town your visiting doesn’t think there is a crisis at the border! Mayor Jim Darling of McAllen Texas: “I certainly wouldn’t call it a crisis!” "A wall is really not the effective way to protect our border.”
The Federal workers union: American Federation of Government Employees Definitely does not support the shutdown!
The #shutdown is having a disproportionate impact on America's veterans. #StopTheShutdown #1u @unionveterans https://abcnews.go.com/Politics/americas-veterans-disproportionately-affected-government-shutdown/story?id=60260832 …
Why are you hurting our Veterans? They served this country so you could stiff them on their paycheck for a fence??????
(1/4) The real problem with illegal immigration isn’t immigrants, it’s the legal immigration system. With 9 million mixed citizenship households, $7,000 process, 10-20 yr. wait and 60% from visa abuse; walls won’t solve problem. Fix the system, fix the problem
(2/4) Donald Trump and Republicans need to stop lying to the American people. Democrats don’t want open borders, terrorists are not crossing the southern border and we have a barrier in place already. We need more monitoring security and personnel, not a wall
(3/4) Democrats already tried to secure border and reform immigration system with S.744. Republicans don’t want to solve illegal immigration. You don’t fix a leaky ship with the passengers inside. Fix Quotas, VISA’s, Refugees, DACA, then you build your wall
(4/4) Donald Trump is forcefully manufacturing a crisis keeping the government closed with 800,000 workers furloughed. The American people spoke during the mid-term election. We don’t want to pay for a useless wall, we’d rather hire 50,000 teachers for 10 years
Mitch McConnell used nuclear option to tamper with Supreme Court, ram through 1% tax cut, refused to open the government and obstructed President Obama. He’s up for re-election. If everyone who read this chipped in $5 we’d flip Kentucky #MitchMustGo❗️
800,000 people aren’t getting paid because you want to impress the Fox and Friends hosts. You truly are Forrest Trump.
The Democrats have the ball in their court. They are the ones not opening the government with their complete obstruction and unwillingness to compromise the President will open the government today if the Dems compromise. He already went from 25 billion to 5.7
The Democrats offered Trump 25 billion dollars, which was the complete cost of that wall last year, but Trump did not want to give them what they wanted. Trump destroyed that deal and Democrats pulled it off the table. He wants to build chaos and division and not a wall.
Actually poll numbers show that most people do NOT want a wall. FACTS MATTER!
Most Americans support "border security". Border security isn't a Wall! Undocumented immigration is down 80% in 20 years. What we are doing is working!
